Who Uses The WH-347 Form & WH-348 Form (Statement of Compliance) and Why?

Back By Popular Demand! A bi-weekly certified payroll form is once again included as a bonus!

When contractors, subcontractors, sub-subs/etc., suppliers, etc., perform work on projects that involve federal funding, they're required to submit in-depth payroll information following Davis-Bacon and the USDOL Wage & Hour Division specific reporting requirements.

The WH-347 Payroll Report form and the WH-348 Statement of Compliance forms are designed for collecting and reporting that information.

These forms are also used by many states for when contractors need to report state-certified payroll.

USDOL Wage & Hour Changes WH-347 Form and Expiration Date!

The USDOL has extended the expiration date on the form, for the OMB number, from 07/31/2024 to 09/30/2026. It also changed the layout of the WH-347 form.

The WH-347 and WH-348 forms available on this webpage have all of the most recent updates (see the images and/or the PDF preview on this webpage).

Should the government extend the expiration date before 09/30/2026 or if the reporting requirements don't change on 09/30/2026 and all they do is extend the expiration date at that time, you can continue to use these forms for even longer, through at least that next expiration date, because we've made it a simple keystroke for you to update that info yourself!

OMB Number and Expiration Date

The current OMB Number on the WH-347 form was extended by the government in late 2023 from July 31, 2024, to September 30, 2026. When it expires, the USDOL Wage & Hour Division may leave the current reporting requirements in place and do nothing more than extend the expiration date or they may change the OMB Number and reporting requirements and assign a new expiration date.

If the reporting requirements don't change you'll be able to easily edit the OMB number expiration date on this Excel form and continue using it through at least the next expiration date.

If the reporting requirements do change, we will strive to offer a new package that meets the new requirements before the current expiration date. Please contact us to purchase an updated package.

Federal Certified Payrolls Must Be Paid and Reported Weekly!

Please use the weekly version included in this package when doing Davis-Bacon federal certified payroll.

The Copeland Act (40 U.S. Code § 3142(c)(1)) states that “the contractor or subcontractor shall pay all mechanics and laborers employed directly on the site of the work, unconditionally and at least once a week, and without subsequent deduction or rebate on any account, the full amounts accrued at time of payment, computed at wage rates not less than those stated in the advertised specifications".

The regulations at 29 CFR 5.5(a)(1), which provide the language for the contract clauses that are incorporated into the Davis-Bacon contracts and that the contractor agrees to by signing, similarly state that laborers and mechanics “will be paid unconditionally and not less often than once a week, and without subsequent deduction or rebate on any account (except such payroll deductions as are permitted by regulations issued by the Secretary of Labor under the Copeland Act (29 CFR part 3)), the full amount of wages and bona fide fringe benefits (or cash equivalents thereof) due.

The Copeland Act (40 U.S.C. § 3145) requires contractors and subcontractors performing work on Federally financed or assisted construction contracts to "furnish weekly a statement with respect to the wages paid each employee during the preceding week."

U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) Regulations at 29 C.F.R. § 5.5(a)(3)(ii) require contractors to submit submit weekly a copy of all payrolls to the Federal agency contracting for or financing the construction project, accompanied by a signed "Statement of Compliance" indicating that the payrolls are correct and complete and that each laborer or mechanic has been paid not less than the proper Davis-Bacon prevailing wage rate for the work performed.

The U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) Wage & Hour Division has stated that because federal certified payroll MUST be paid no less than once per week, and MUST be reported weekly per Davis-Bacon, a biweekly version is not valid and must not be used.

Always pay your federal payrolls weekly and always submit your federal payroll reports in single-week format. [Back]

USDOL Wage & Hour Division (aka Department) Clarifies Rules for Employees with Multiple Classifications

The Department clarified reporting requirements that have to do with employees who work under more than one classification on a project.

Contractors and subcontractors are required to include on their certified payroll submissions (and keep records of) hours worked by an employee broken down by each separate classification of work performed by that employee. If the employee works under two or more classifications on a project, there must be a separate entry for each classification that shows the hours worked and monies earned under each classification.

If a contractor or subcontractor fails to report the breakdown accurately and/or maintain such records of actual daily and weekly hours worked and the correct classifications for those hours worked, then it must pay workers the rates of the classification of work performed with the highest prevailing wage and fringe benefits due.

This Excel form and the in-depth instructions make entering, tracking, and reporting multiple-classification employees very easy and simple!

The instructions walk through step-by-step how to enter multiple-classification employees on the WH-347 form to meet the Department’s requirements. And anytime you might have questions, I'm here to help. :o)

USDOL Wage & Hour Division (aka Department) Institutes New Recordkeeping Requirements

The Department recently added two new recordkeeping requirements for contractors to the collection under 1235–0008 (telephone # and email address; social security number and mailing address were already required). However, like the social security # and mailing address, they don’t want this information added to the “certified payrolls” submission (such as the WH–347 instrument); rather, this information must be maintained in-house and then provided to DOL and other agencies on request. Be sure to immediately start keeping this information on hand. If you use Excel, our enhanced Premium Excel workbook makes it easy to keep all the info in one place!

Submission of Federal Certified Payroll

While completion of Form WH-347 is optional, it is mandatory for covered contractors and subcontractors performing work on Federally financed or assisted construction contracts to respond to the information collection contained in 29 C.F.R. §§ 3.3, 5.5(a). The Copeland Act (40 U.S.C. § 3145) requires contractors and subcontractors performing work on Federally financed or assisted construction contracts to "furnish weekly a statement with respect to the wages paid each employee during the preceding week." U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) Regulations at 29 C.F.R. § 5.5(a)(3)(ii) require contractors to submit weekly a copy of all payrolls to the Federal agency contracting for or financing the construction project, accompanied by a signed "Statement of Compliance" indicating that the payrolls are correct and complete and that each laborer or mechanic has been paid not less than the proper Davis-Bacon prevailing wage rate for the work performed. DOL and federal contracting agencies receiving this information review the information to determine that employees have received legally required wages and fringe benefits.

There is a simple PDF form available through the federal government website that you can download and use for free. The USDOL estimates it’ll take you 55 minutes to fill out their version but in our experience, it can easily take double or triple that time, and even more if you have a large field crew. The Excel and PDF forms available here, with multiple auto-calculating and autofill fields, will save you so much time over that simpler PDF document.

- Federal Certified Payrolls Must Be Paid and Reported Weekly -

The USDOL Wage & Hour Division has stated that federal certified payroll MUST be paid no less than once per week, and MUST be reported weekly per Davis-Bacon.

Do not pay your federal payroll less often than once per week and do not submit your federal payroll on a biweekly form.
